As good as I think Donaire will be I think it's a little to soon for him to face someone like Mijares but Montiel/Mijares woould be a good one.
Totally disagree. I was not too sure about Donaire after the Darchinian bout just because i had not seen him before and was not sure if it was just a clash of styles and Nonito had his #. But after the way he handled Luis Maldonado last Saturday night confirms that he is legit. He dominated and stopped Vic and dominated (exception of the 4th rd) and stopped Maldonado.
Maldonado is as tough as they come. His only loss came from Darchinian and he fought to a draw with Mijares. Not only is he ready for Christian, but I believe he beats him. I actually would like to see a Montiel/Donaire fight more. But IMHO, I believe that Donaire would take him as well.
